The Attack of the Tomato

We got to have a little fun this past Saturday with our #DJIMavicPro. The East Nashville Tomato Art Fest is in it’s 15th year & for the past 5 years, a large tomato mural has been painted in the middle of 5 points. It originated with muralist Andee Rudloff and is now an ongoing project funded by the Nashville #ChamberEast and designed by street artist Troy Duff.

This year’s theme could be called “Attack of the Tomato”. The image of a large tomato looks like it fell from the sky and cracked the pavement around 5 points. And only the drone can show that perfect perspective! It was a dark start so we did a time-lapse first for the 4am painting party. At 5:33 we were cleared for drone flights. The ceilings were a little low but still gave us the clearance we needed to fly. By the time the 5K was to start at 7am, the art was done and selfies ensued. See the final result below and stay tuned for more footage from the mural.

From all of us at Aerial Innovations, hope you had a great Tomato Weekend!
